“Writing for the Soul Workshop for Youth is giving young authors in Joplin, surrounding communities and across the world the opportunity to express themselves creatively and to tell their stories to others.
I had the opportunity to meet some of these fine young authors at a book signing a little while back, and was very impressed. Upon reading the stories collected in their book, “Pieces of Me,” I was moved. These authors poured out their emotions, and the result is nothing less than inspiring.” -Benji Tunnell, Joplin Globe
About The Bully Diaries:
Chances are that you experienced bullying in your life. Whether your experience was as a victim, a bystander or the bully, if you search your memories, you will probably find instances when bullying was a part of your life. For many of us, these experiences have defined us and shaped us. Our experiences made us stronger, and helped us become who we are today.
When you are being bullied, it is hard to think about much more than getting through today. For others, there is no today. Their experience being bullied was too overwhelming, and drove them to a devastating and permanent solution to the temporary pain.
Through a community partnership with Stand for the Silent, Writing for the Soul Workshop collected stories, letters and poems from youth, teens and adults from around the world. These stories are pieces of lives impacted by bullying; written to show everyone affected by bullying that you are not alone, that you can survive the experience, that you are somebody.
A portion of the proceeds from book sales goes to support Stand for the Silent.
